: cindy, thank you for your comment. bob is next from massachusetts. independent line. my comment is pretty much the same as the last woman's. i think the president is making the biggest mistake that we will ever hear. he can't give these people a right to keep all that stuff. they will nuke israel. there is no doubt. he will nuke israel and i bet you it will happen inside of six months. i'm sorry. have a nice day. host: mike is joining us from washington state. caller: good morning, mike. i am an iraq veteran. those to say this, countries don't care about us and they don't care about israel. ist is their whole mission to destroy israel. when people are saying that they should not be -- that they should be allowed to enrich nuclear program, what we should not be -- we should not be dealing with terrorists at all. as with what these people do. israel has been having dumped on for centuries. i am an irish italian catholic and i support israel. i don't have the same religious views, but i completely support israel. we need to stand by israel. there are christian sites in israel that
that the massachusetts connector, who is run by the same guy who was running connecticut's exchange in the first month only so 0.3% of total enrollment sign-up. so, i have confident that the rocket will fly off the shelves once people can get into the website -- this product will fly off of the sale -- shelves once people can get into the website because what we have seen in connecticut and also i am optimistic that once his site is up it will be up in time for the largest number of people to inoll, because what you said response to senator bennet's questions, the reality is that the vast majority of people are going to be looking for coverage as the enrollment date draws near. so, i guess that is the frame of my question to you. from the experience of people who have been able to access these exchanges -- either at the national level or state level -- what do we know about the quality of the product and, two, what do we know about the timing of when people actually sign up for plans like this? we have the massachusetts experience, the experience of medicare part d. to the extent your timeline plays o
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman. 'm going to focus, if i can, on the concerns raised by senator isakson, alexander, and the chairman, on security and privacy. we have a law, the federal information security management .ct, his mother --fisma everything has to have an acronym. it requires each agency to a point a chief security officer to ensure americans private financial and identifying information is protected. and that is a big issue. secretary civilians revealed last week exchanges operating on temporary authority to operate. there is a 2012 12 memo from zyonts,
for massachusetts. here's mitt romney's response. quote. nothing has changed my view that a plan crafted to fit the unique circumstances of a single state should not be grafted on to the entire country. health reform is best crafted by state with bipartisan support and input from its employers as we did without raising taxes and by carefully phasing it in to avoid the type of disruption we are seeing nationally, unquote. romney, by the way, was not invited to attend the president's annual hall speech. defending obama care. >> question, who aside from mitt romney sees the current chaos as disruptive? >> i think romney was right on the mark there. when you have a bipartisan, when the governor is helping you out to implement the program and the government is part of the program, it works. the state that is receptive to government in healthcare. when you go to mississippi, of course, they will do everything to throw monkey wrenches into the process who don't want to implement it. this is his statement. goes directly with obama is saying. wanting the thing to work and not wanting to work. >> ther
enrollment period. and just in terms of the massachusetts experience, young adults have waited somewhat longer but the uninsured rates among young adults is 21% in the year prior to the passage of the law in massachusetts. that rate dropped to 8% in the after. i think it does, the experience, the survey research that we've done, the experience in massachusetts does suggest young adults will come into the market places, the numbers will help do what we're hoping they would do not only helping them but also stabilizing the market. spent so, we used all sorts of information sources to, on a weekly basis, hit the restart button. i had a meeting with my senior folks every week, looking back at what we know about enrollment, what we know about folks who were on the ground. so if we know that holding an event in the evening results in five people showing up versus launch, you get 50 people to show up, that's where our resources go. so we look at everything that's happened to not only the data we're seeing but also what we're hearing from our sisters. orienteering from brokers in community grou
. >> but to the prototype for obama care, the massachusetts health care plan created by mr. obama's former 2012 rival, mitt romney, in that first month, in that program, slow rollout, only roughly 100 people signed up. >> virtually every resident in the commonwealth is insured today. >> health care reform in this state was a success. that doesn't mean it was perfect right away. >> officials warn, the numbers would be low. >> that doesn't include those who enrolled in state exchanges. >> the state exchanges, which are essentially set up for free by the federal government in the states that accepted them, are doing very well. >> it's cranking out people that are joining up every day. >> over the last three years, internal obstacles and bureaucratic molasses threatened the whole enterprise. >> when you go to the pulse center and find out how many residents in that state are being helped, you only shake your head as to why we aren't doing that in every state of the union. >> all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. >> if there is a way that you can insure every one of your people or get them

of this irresponsibility and the negligence of this company in massachusetts. a lawsuit was filed recently in nevada. two young boys were allegedly impacted significantly as a result of this medication that was really bad medication. unless the entire united states senate bends to that one senator's wish -- the one that voted "no" -- he will force this body to jump through hoops and work through the next several days wasting time to finish this crucial drug safety bill. but we're going to finish the bill. we're going to finish that bill. it's important for our country, and i can't let one senator dictate what goes on here in the senate. mr. president, following leader remarks, the senate will be in a period of morning business for two hours. republicans will control the first half, and the majority will control the final half. following that morning business, we will vote on the adoption of the motion to proceed to h.r. 3204, the pharmaceutical drug compounding bill. this is expected to -- i hope that in fact is the case. if thats case that is the case,e will said to what will happen subsequent to thasm

small business, another small business wants a $20 co-pay. so we know that from the massachusetts connector experience in small group market and we know that based on the commercial side of the market. and i have a private board that made many of these decisions with a lot of input from policy stakeholder workgroups. so we decided early on that we wanted, that we didn't want to limit products. we wanted carriers to be as innovative as they wanted to be. the one early decision that we made, which was unanimously recommended by all stakeholders including consumer groups, providers and carriers was that we would not allow benefits substitutions to the central health benefits package. and so that products could have additional benefits like acupuncture as an example, if not one of the core benefits. so the variation in product is really additional benefits on top of the essential health benefits benchmarked and the variation in your out of pocket liability. so the co-pay, coinsurance, et cetera. >> thank you. spent thank you. i also work in coalition with many asian-american organizat

. >> the fact in massachusetts, they did it. they ended up with 98.5% in that state on insurance to be fair. they started with more who are on ens. i think what a lot of people are worried about right now. i think it's a real worry. is that with so much attention on the website and obama care and does it work and doesn't it work? it just looks like a big mess. if you are young and healthy, are you going to troy to work your way through this thicket or pay your $95 or not pay it and mover on? that's the big question. >> we're very zraktd distracted, the young generation. >> i am, too. in massachusetts when it first ran, it ran through several glitches as the aca is now with one critical difference. in massachusetts, there wasn't an opposing political party trying to destroy it. >> and kill the message. >> and throw up a smokescreen that people throw their hands up. if way this was constructed, it could work. it could be an enormous benefit. >> if they sign up. a couple move news stories to get to. first of all, republican congressman trey raible will be in court -- radel, the freshman bought

-- butrollment period what we've learned in massachusetts is when it comes to enrolling in health care, any of us wait until the end to get it done. what didator tavenner, the administration anticipates would be the pattern, of enrollment, prior, what were you thinking prior to the launch of thinkcare.gov, and do you the early problems you had are moing to affect the long-ter pattern in enrollment? >> we assumed we would be able to enroll folks throughout the six months, but that that greatest surge would come in december, because we got there were people who wanted coverage on january 1 and the second search would come late february, early march, by the individuals who were not as motivated to get insurance. figures, butment they were lower for october him and i think they will be low, and it follows the massachusetts experience, and that was part of the reason for such a long and rome at period -- such a long enrollment period in the first year. >> and you have time to get these problems fixed? >> i think we have time. >> we agreed that the problems of the website are unacceptable, but our expe

for one small business and another small business wants a $20 co-pay, we know that from the massachusetts connector periods -- from the massachusetts connector experience we know that. we have a lot of input from policy workgroups. we decided early on that we did not want to limit product. we wanted carriers to be as innovative as they wanted to be. the one early decision that we made which was unanimously recommended by a variety of groups and carriers, it was that benefit not allow substitutions to the benefit packages. benefits likeonal acupuncture, as an example, but it is not a core benefit. in productsn includes additional benefits on top of the essential benefit. the variation in your out up rocket -- out-of-pocket life. >> thank you. you.ank i am with voice of vietnamese americans. with theon has to do language barrier. have you seen problems? you have 11 languages on paper, and only 2 lane which is online for the application. we have a high percentage of asian americans and the number is rising. i don't know if you have numbers from healthcare.gov. how many asian-americans are co

than iffy there. an open seat in massachusetts is a history of electing the governors in open seat races and connecticut rounds out the top five. with the governors, another story line is going to be the 2016 angle and the 2016 intrigue in here. the republican governor scott walker and martinez are early favorites and both will be in competitive races. one or both could lose. all the talk about walker for president or suzanna martinez on the ticket. what would happen if one loses there in the dust bin of political history. other people like jerry brown. he wins with more than 60% reelection has a record to run on in health. a health exchange that works pretty well. does he end up running? andy cuomo. he had a big win. whoever wins in florida and that epic style battle guarantee you one or both of them think they should be part of the national conversation. we will see how that goes. chris cristy is traveling ahead of the rga. he is booked in oklahoma, idaho and vermont. he is eagerly talking about that upcoming travel. >> i will be in south carolina and pennsylvania and ohio and fl

. ronald reagan, hell, won in massachusetts. it seems to me, larry, chris christie is a republican who understands that you've got to parachute behind enemy lines and take back some of the blue states or the gop just ain't going to win another presidential election. your take. >> of course that's correct. i mean, they have to do something to win blue states. maybe they start with the purple ones. frankly, larry, like virginia, which is, after all, the closest to the national average presidentially now for both 2008 and 2012. hey, if you can't win virginia back, you're not going to win the white house back. so, the republicans really do have to follow the christie model, even if they don't agree with all of christie's positions. they have to find people who talk blue. you know, there are other people out there, like scott walker, governor of wisconsin, he's won in a blue state and he talks blue. >> john kasich knows how to talk blue. there's a whole bunch of them. in this respect, i think christie is a path-breaker. karen finney, dick, you're great. that's it for this show. lots of twit
've gone after other republicans before, right? take mitt romney who ran as a moderate in massachusetts, not once, but twice and that's obviously the obama campaign and they believe at least on social issues they successfully painted him as somebody who was too conservative for the mainstream. it doesn't surprise me that that's going to be the tactic that they use. if you look at virginia, we're seeing this is a successful strategy right now, that the brand of the republican party particularly on social issues. all republicans are vulnerable to this because they end up having to own sort of where the entire party is sitting on social issues, but it will be difficult. if new jersey is a place for gay marriage. if this is a guy that's walking hand in hand in the boardwalk with barack obama while they're playing see ball together. it will be hard for the average voter to think, yeah, that guy is -- especially if ted cruz is running. >> and another place like south carolina, especially an average voter. >> chuck todd, thank you so much, sir. >> catch "the daily rundown" week days 9:00 a.m.
